August 27, 2019 Updated: August 27, 2019

A Mexican woman survived a six-story fall after doing extreme yoga, it was reported.

Reports said that she was posing for social media photos when she dropped about 80 feet on Aug. 25. She survived but broke numerous bones.

Mexican newspaper El Universal reported that the woman was identified as 23-year-old Alexa Terrazas. In one photo, she is seen hanging upside down outside of a balcony rail while supporting herself with her legs and waist.

After the photo was taken, she fell from the balcony and broke both her legs, the report said.

The woman, who is from San Pedro in Nuevo Leon, broke 110 bones and underwent several surgeries after falling.

After she slipped, she fell on the pavement outside the building, El Imparcial reported.

The New York Post reported that she was a nutrition student at Tecnológico de Monterrey.

Doctors then had to reconstruct her legs, and it could be about three years before she can walk again, the Post reported.

Neighbors said they saw Terrazas doing the stunt over the edge of her terrace.

The Nuevo Leon Attorney General’s Office said the rail was structurally sound. Her fall was an accident, the Post reported.

The report said she will face years of recovery after the fall.

Newlywed Couple Dies After Marriage

A newlywed couple in Texas died in a car crash right after they were married in a wedding ceremony on Aug. 23, multiple sources have reported.

Their vehicle collided with a pickup truck, killing the two, KFDM reported.

Harley Morgan, 19, and Rhiannon Boudreaux, 20, were driving on a highway in Orange, Texas, when their vehicle hit a pickup truck towing a trailer and a tractor, police said.

The accident took place just a few minutes after the two exchanged vows. The sister and mother of the groom witnessed the crash, according to the news outlet.

“They had just gotten married,” Morgan’s mother, Kennia, told the station. “They haven’t even been married for five minutes.”

“Those two babies,” Kennia Morgan said. “The only thing that they wanted was to get married and start their life. The two of them had so many dreams.”

The two died at the scene of the crash. The man driving the truck was unharmed.

Kennia attempted to save the two and tried to pull them out of the vehicle.

Facts About Crime in the United States

Violent crime in the United States has fallen sharply over the past 25 years, according to both the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) and the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) (pdf).

The rate of violent crimes fell by 49 percent between 1993 and 2017, according to the FBI’s UCR, which only reflects crimes reported to the police.

The violent crime rate dropped by 74 percent between 1993 and 2017, according to the BJS’s NCVS, which takes into account both crimes that have been reported to the police and those that have not.

The FBI recently released preliminary data for 2018. According to the Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, January to June 2018, violent crime rates in the United States dropped by 4.3 percent compared to the same six-month period in 2017.

While the overall rate of violent crime has seen a steady downward drop since its peak in the 1990s, there have been several upticks that bucked the trend. Between 2014 and 2016, the murder rate increased by more than 20 percent, to 5.4 per 100,000 residents, from 4.4, according to an Epoch Times analysis of FBI data. The last two-year period that the rate soared so quickly was between 1966 and 1968.
